Living Life in the Zone by Kyle Rote Jr. & Dr. Joe Pettigrew

The subtitle for this book is “A 40 Day Spiritual Game Plan for men.” And, it delivers on the promise. Of course, like any plan, to be effective it must be implemented. But, it does follow a very logical and well designed lay out. The book is divided into sections dealing with each area of a man’s relationships; his wife, his kids, his friends, his work and his future. You may look at the list and ask – “what about God?” Good question, and the answer is He is addressed in each one of the areas mentioned. He is not compartmentalized into a just for church or Sunday’s only category.

Each chapter is divided into several sections including the:

  • Coach’s Corner – the issue is candidly addressed
  • Game plan – what the Bible says about the matter
  • Playmakers – examples of personalities who demonstrate the characteristic addressed (or demonstrate the lack of it)
  • Time Out – questions to personalize the issue
  • Today’s Assignment – how to apply what has been discussed

This book is not a heavy weight study, but it is one men can relate to, and benefit from – if applied.

It would make a good gift for any married – or soon-to-be-married man. Due to the emphasis on marriage and children, I’m not sure a single guy would relate to it that well.
